Iran-North Korea-Syria Cooperation, and More from CRS

By April 21, 2014

The executive branch today provides less unclassified information to Congress concerning proliferation of weapons mass destruction than it used to do, a new report from the Congressional Research Service observes.

“The number of unclassified reports to Congress on WMD-related issues has decreased considerably in recent years,” the report said. “Congress may wish to consider requiring additional reporting from the executive branch on WMD proliferation.” That suggestion appeared in a new CRS report entitled Iran-North Korea-Syria Ballistic Missile and Nuclear Cooperation, published April 16, 2014.
